Saturday Share

Since the kids and I have developed some great recipes, very kid friendly (for us anyway), I thought I'd take some time on Saturdays to make one of these, take pictures, and then share it. Today we start with Barbeque Cups, an incredibly easy, and cheap, meal. This can easily be made into larger portions for larger families.

You will need: 1 package of biscuits (cost about .69 at Aldi's), 1 pound ground meat (we used ground turkey from Aldi's, about .89), and 1/2 cup of your favorite BBQ sauce. I have also done this with shredded cheese on top, which is wonderful, but we didn't have any on hand today and it's just as good without. :)

You'll start by browning your ground meat...

While that's cooking away, start your oven preheating to 400 degrees, undo your biscuits, stretch and push them in your hands to a large circle, and form them into the bottoms of a muffin pan...

You'll then add 1/2 cup of BBQ sauce to the ground meat and mix well.
After, spoon the meat mix into each biscuit. Our package had 10 biscuits, and there was meat mix leftover to make a couple sloppy joe's for the kids tomorrow.
Place into the oven for 10-12 minutes until slightly golden on the edges...
Remove, allow to cool about five minutes, then remove carefully with a fork and enjoy!

Liam's was done before he even started on the rest of his meal...

Olivia ate three of these today and Braeden had FOUR! :) I had one with a cup of soup. With the ingredients I used today they were about 130 calories each. We ended up with one left over and some extra meat mix. Hope you find this as big a hit as we do! :)

About Me

I am a single mom to four amazing kids; each of whom just happen to have been adopted. The first three were adopted through foster care, and we just completed an international adoption from Haiti. Our family has grown through adoption and I am all the more blessed to know each of my children. I worship a mighty God, teach Special Ed, love bargains, and am inspired by Pinterest... come along with us for the ride!

What you should know about HIV

-HIV can NOT be spread through casual/household contact. HIV is not spread through hugging, kissing, shaking hands, sharing toys, sneezing, coughing, sharing food, sharing drinks, bathing, swimming or any other casual way. It has been proven that HIV and AIDS can only be spread through sexual contact, birth, breastfeeding and blood to blood contact (such as sharing needles). - HIV is now considered a chronic but manageable disease. With treatment, people who are HIV+ can live indefinitely without developing AIDS and can live long and full lives. - People who are HIV+ deserve to be treated with love, respect, support and acceptance as all people do. Additional information on transmission of HIV can be found on the Center for Disease Control website:

Little Did I Know

Little did I know that the road would be so rocky
Little did I know that the trip would take so long
Little did I know that my heart could hurt so much
Little did I know that God is never wrong

Little did I know that love could be so powerful
Little did I know that a dream so far could go
Little did I know that God would place the right ones
Little did I know that my heart, so large, could grow

Little did I know that a dream has it’s own timing
Little did I know that this day would finally come
Little did I know that four souls would be sent to guide me
Little did I know that they would choose to call me mom

But God knew all along and He had a plan to follow
God knew all along that my dream would soon come true
God knew all along that we five should be together
God knew all along that I’d share it all with you
